THE BIRTH OF JOHN THE BAPTIST– SUNDAY JUNE 24TH 2018
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today. Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.
THE COLLECT FOR THE DAY
Almighty God, by whose providence your servant John the Baptist
was wonderfully born, and sent to prepare the way of your Son our Saviour by the preaching of repentance:
Lead us to repent according to his preaching
and, after his example,
constantly to speak the truth, boldly to rebuke vice,
and patiently to suffer for the truth’s sake;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
READING (Page 1143/1156)
Old Testament Reading Isaiah 40: 1-11
New Testament Reading Acts 13: 14b-26
Gospel St. Luke 1: 57-66, 80
Whose prophet John the Baptist
proclaimed your Son as the Lamb of God
who takes away the sin of the world:
Grant that we who in this sacrament have known
Your forgiveness and your life-giving love
may ever tell of your mercy and your peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
